New Exercise Program – No better time than the present.

The holiday season is upon us, which means shopping, parties, and lots of visiting friends and neighbors.  Believe it or not, this is the perfect time to start a new fitness routine.  Exercising will give you more energy and elevate your mood, both things that will certainly prove helpful in this hectic time of year.  Start slow, and don’t bite off more than you can chew.  Put two, half hour sessions into your schedule. The first 15 minutes should be spent on a bike, treadmill or other piece of “cardio” equipment.  Use a pace that is sufficient enough to make you break a sweat.  Once you see that you can do it, add 5 to 10 minutes.   The last 15 minutes should be devoted to your resistance training. Pick 4 or 5 simple exercises like push ups, crunches and squats.  Aim for 2 sets of 12 to 15 repetitions.  The last few reps in each set should burn.  If you don’t have free weights, purchase a few exercise bands and a therapy ball.  Finish each session with some light stretching to keep your muscles from becoming too tight and sore. Good luck and get started today.  If you need help with the program, give Chris a call at 203.253.3179.
